Hot Chocolate Anyone!

My card today is for this week's sketch challenge over on SCS. This week we were given two sketches which were pretty much very similar one was landscape and the other portrait style ... I ended up going with the portrait style sketch as it suited the image that I wanted to use.

Apparently there is also a week long "pink" theme over on SCS ... so we were encouraged to include pink in our card.

I wanted to play a bit more with one of my Whiff of Joy stamps I got a while back that I haven't had much of a chance to play with ... I just love these images. The designer paper I selected for this card reminded me of the flowers that are on the girls jeans .... there are actually pink & cranberry colored flowers on the designer paper .... unfortunately by the time I added all the layers to my card you can't see too many of the flowers especially the pink ones. Believe me they are there LOL!

Paper: White; Cranberry Crisp, Pretty In Pink & Baja Breeze - SU; DP - Imaginisce

Frances, my daughter walked into the room while I was posting and I called you Jennifer. I love your card and how you used your background around your beautifully painted image. I have an award for you on my blog. I can't wait to see what you post next too.
